Oatmeal Cake with Coconut Frosting

41

Every year I request this Oatmeal Cake for my birthday. I just love it! The cake part is hearty from the oatmeal and slightly cinnamon-y. And, the frosting…well, that part is just pure bliss! It’s a cooked frosting, full of nuts and coconut. This is one of those things that you can tell is homemade, just by looking at it. No way can you get this kind of goodness out of a box. You can tell it’s made with love. I love everything about this cake.
